    Does The Jerk count? I've never known any female that liked this movie. [​IMG] And of course, Animal House [​IMG] Caddyshack [​IMG] and, admittedly, that guy [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Fight Club "So, how's that working out for ya?" "What?" "Being clever." "Great." "Then keep it up. Now, a question of etiquette; as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?" Full Metal Jacket "I am going to motivate you, Pyle, if it shortdicks every cannibal in the Congo!" Team America [Outtake] Gary: "That's it! I'm leaving." Spotteswood: "No, Gary, don't go. We need you more than ever!" Gary: "But everybody hates us." Spotteswood: "Hey, now, everybody hated Winnie the Pooh too." Gary: "No they didn't!" Spotteswood: "Well I did. That cocksucking bear killed Jack Kennedy!"

    "My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos ..."

    Am I the only one here who thinks this among the greatest of all films?

    Everybody has insecurity issues and I won't deny that I occasionally act on them. Anyone that says they're completely confident, all the time, in every situation, is lying. However, insecurity had nothing to do with this particular situation.

    As for the movie and Clive Owen's character in particular, how would you expect him to react to the fact that his wife had been fucking another guy for a year? Or are you a saint? Anyhow, I've now been up for 30 hours and it's time to go home because i'm having trouble completing my thoughts.


    I can certainly understand your position, I just take a different one. In my mind, if your wife and some other guy have been pulling that shiat, it's best to just get the hell away from both of them ASAP. "Revenge fucks" or whatever only make a bad situation worse. I can certainly see the desire for revenge, but IMHO, the best, healthiest bet is to be rid of both of them ASAP.

    Incidentally, I do believe that Clive Owen's character makes quite a few references to the damage the whole thing has inflicted upon his ego (and justifiably so). It was about insecurity.

    But really, psychoanalyzing guy movies detracts from their very "guyness" and I will stop and go watch "The Ya-Ta Sisterhood" or something.

    - Reservoir Dogs - I've always thought that this movie provides
    an excellent example of how guys talk when there are no women around -
    maybe not in the "Tarantino cool" dialogue, but with the same
    sentiments.


    Action: _Reservoir Dogs_ and its Hong Kong antecedents like _City on Fire_
    Guytalk: _The Last Days of Disco_
    Guytalk: _The Pompatus of Love_

    Suspense: _Very Bad Things_

    Its own category: _Dice Rules_

    Speaking of the Dice-man, what about The Adventures of Ford Fairlane?
    That could pretty much be considered a "guy" movie.
